I woke up with a tear in my eye and write the lyrics to candlelight. (Our power has been out since the ice storm) Fortunately my Zoom H4 runs on batteries. This is the second take.
I played it on my Sigma guitar. Recorded to a Zoom H4 using the included mics. Mastered in SAW Classic.
Can You Really? by Larry Heyl February 2009
In the museum where we met We had some coffee and she let me hold her hand. I waited for her by the bus The night was long and still the day was kind of grand. She wasn't very good at math But she could sing a song that lingers in my mind. I saw her naked in the bath I won't forget her smile or her cute behind.
I met a girl in a dream and she died. I awoke with a tear in my eye. Are things never really what they seem And can you really, can you really, die in a dream.
She was fun and she was smart A little sweet, a little tart, and more than fine. I liked the way she wore her hair She lived her life without a care and without time. I wouldn't say we were in love She was no angel from above. I'd stop and stare. Her laughter rippled through my mind She wasn't mean, she wasn't kind, but she was there.
I met a girl in a dream and she died. I awoke with a tear in my eye. With my wife sleeping soundly by my side. Three days later I finally cried. Why are things never really what they seem And can you really, can you really, die in a dream.
